3 Thoroughly Modern Ways To Incorporate Gray And Black In The Kitchen

Today’s modern kitchen designs indulge in new color schemes that step away from your traditional shades. One combo we love is the sleek pairing of gray and black. If you can dare to be different, we’re happy to show you how to incorporate this duo in your new kitchen.


1. Gray or Black Kitchen Cabinets


Kitchen designs with gray or black cabinets feel fresh and updated. This modern finish has become increasingly more popular, as homeowners have continued to favor stainless steel and matte black kitchen appliances. If you’re as crazy about this look as we are, here are a few of our favorite gray and black kitchen cabinets from The RTA Store for you to browse:

2. Hardwood Flooring


The new materials and styles of hardwood flooring allow you to incorporate more interesting finishes while still maintaining the classic look of wood. Gray or black hardwood flooring adds a dramatic element to your modern kitchen, and is a great way to incorporate one of these colorful trends.


In your search for new flooring, definitely take a look at LTV or luxury vinyl tile. This material mimics the appearance of stone, wood or tile but is much more affordable. Another reason so many homeowners opt for LVT is that it is extremely easy to install. Some options even come with self-adhesive backing, allowing it to be placed right on the floor or on top of your existing flooring.


3. Kitchen Islands

We love the idea of a gray or black kitchen island alongside white cabinets. You could even include both gray and black cabinetry by doing your wall cabinets one color and your island the other. You can find an extensive selection of black kitchen islands and carts at The RTA Store. Some styles even feature a beautiful gray granite countertop!


These portable options make it easy to add a new color to your kitchen, and can accommodate a variety of floor plans. You’ll find breakfast bars, portable islands, rolling carts, and bars. Some come with seating and others stand alone. With so many options, you’ll have no problem finding the perfect piece to add gray or black to your kitchen — and make the room more functional!
